Carly Rae Jepsen, Dwight Yoakam, Jim Jefferies all add Toronto shows

Comedian adds third show while Canadian pop star adds the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, country music legend Dwight Yoakam, and comedian Jim Jefferies all added Toronto dates to their touring schedules on Tuesday — and in Jepsen’s case, it’s with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

Jepsen, singer/co-writer of the indelible “Call Me Maybe,” will perform her hits on June 17 at Roy Thomson Hall with the full orchestra, and some more intimate moments with guitar and string quartets. Tickets ($33-$95) are on sale now at

Yoakam released his 15th album — a mostly bluegrass affair entitled Swimmin’ Pools, Movie Stars that featured a “Purple Rain” cover — last year. Maybe we’ll hear it on July 22 at the Danforth Music Hall: tickets ($70-$80) go on sale Friday via Ticketmaster.

The American synth-rock outfit Future Islands has also announced a date Oct. 6 at Massey Hall. Tickets will be $40-$60 when they’re made available on Friday at

Meanwhile, the blunt-talking Aussie cutup Jefferies, having already announced two shows Nov. 10 at the Sony Centre — has succumbed to demand and added a third, on the next night. Tickets ($50-$70) go on sale Friday, again through Ticketmaster.
